Santa House Express

Santa’s House Express Re-Imagined Experience for 2020


Each family unit will travel as one, together but somewhat separated from others. You will enjoy the company of other families but at a safe distance.

Arrive through the big gates to Santa’s Estate and make your way up Twinkle Avenue to park your car. Head on over to the ‘Welcome Zone’ where Santa’s friendly helpers will show you where to go next. Hop on board Santa’s House Express Train for a journey through the beautiful grounds of Palmerstown House Estate until you reach the Manor.

This year Mrs Claus and friends will welcome you in the great Manor Hall with a wonderful show for all their special guests. She will then invite our families to join Santa and some very special characters for an audience to remember!


Santa and his helpers will greet a small number of families together in his lavish living room. Each family bubble will have their own space to enjoy the show and atmosphere of the audience with Santa and his hilarious helpers while keeping a social distance from other family bubbles.

This year please understand we must change our set-up as the upstairs of the manor is not suitable for social distancing, therefore, private meets with Santa will not be possible, however, we have a fantastic Santa show planned for you all. Each year we have new attractions, themes, performers and entertainment along with the old favourites to thrill old friends and new!

A warm festive welcome awaits you after your train journey back to the North Pole Village. 2020 will see the return of the extremely popular and inclusive festival funfair that can be enjoyed by all ages with unlimited rides for all our visitors. There will also be magnificent additions to our Christmas festival lighting show.

Our young guests will be able to visit Santa’s Toy Store beside the funfair area to choose a gift to take home. The Elves will be ready with a great choice of gifts.

Festive treats will be available in the Woodland Cafe, or guests can book lunch and dinner in the clubhouse restaurant pre or post-experience.

There is also an option to have a professional family photo taken on Santa’s Sleigh, this is located in the clubhouse. This can be pre-booked online (best rate), or purchased on the day. The photo is a lovely keepsake from the experience before you say your goodbyes to Santa’s Helpers for this year.
